Abstract:

Volume 2 of the IMIS Final Program Report discusses the three phases of the IMIS program Requirements Analysis System Design and Development and Demonstration System Fabrication and Field Evaluation. Main objectives of the Requirements Analysis phase were to 1 identify and analyze the functional, informational, and human computer interface requirements for an IMIS in the Air Force maintenance environment 2 develop a system architecture which supported those requirements and 3 develop system functional requirements specifications. Primary products of the Requirements Analysis were the IMIS Architecture and the SystemSegment Specification. During System Design and Development, a subset of IMIS requirements was selected for implementation and demonstration. Upon completion of the IMIS demonstration system, hardware and software were installed and field tested at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona. Objectives of the field evaluation were to 1 test the IMIS concept under realistic operational conditions, 2 evaluate IMIS effectiveness in supporting the unit maintenance mission, 3 demonstrate the technical advantages of IMIS over the current system, and 4 identify strengths and weaknesses of the demonstration system which could be used in refining requirements for a production implementation.
